Vv Pete Continues Fiery Reign With New Single: BACARDI PAPI
Rapper Vv Pete, “Australia’s baddest,” today shares her latest heater, ‘BACARDI PAPI’ via independent imprint Trackwork.
Boasting a savage strut with every step that continues to leave audiences guessing her next move, ‘BACARDI PAPI’ sees Vv Pete pivot her sound to new edges.
Produced by Trackwork label founder and longstanding collaborator Utility and the GRAMMY-Award winning “dystopic-reggaeton” pioneer Kelman Duran (Beyonce’s Renaissance), ‘BACARDI PAPI’ displays the apex of Vv’s club-influenced style. With the throbbing bass of Baile Funk, the single extends on the drill and jersey club-infused elements explored in her FBi SMAC Award-winning ‘Song Of The Year‘ ‘Jordan 1s‘. Simply put ‘BACARDI PAPI’ cuts hard.
Of the single, Vv Pete shares
“BACARDI PAPI is a fun track, big energy which is Varvie Energy! It’s about exploring a turned-up frequency with my friends, whilst sipping liquor and somewhat feeling high, I wanna party! Was super fun making this track with two Legends Dj Kelman and Utility and I can’t wait for y’all to tell me what your thoughts on this track is.”
‘BACARDI PAPI‘ arrives complete with a music video that sees Vv traverse the variety of characters and perspectives at a warehouse party.
With only four singles to her name, Vv Pete has solidified her place as a one-of-a-kind, infectious, and vital addition to so-called Australia’s hip-hop scene. The Mount Druitt based, Sudanese rapper/singer with a sharpened flow reminiscent of artists like Stefflon Don, Lizzo and Sexxy Red is forging a genre-bending flavour of Aus-based rap that is hers alone: globe-trotting, heavy club sonics, rapid-fire wit, and boss-level delivery. Varvies rise! The Vv Pete takeover is imminent.
